being eased up, a very good environment for lending, very solid for housing. i can see a lot more reasons to be positive than negative right now. >> if interest rates went up 100 basis points, you think housing would do as well? >> you think they will go up 100 basis points. >> my point is housing better do good at historically manipulated low rates. i don't see that it's bragging rights here. >> right, right. the minute interest rates going up, where is the blockbuster in housing building taking place, in the midwest or takingce in new york city, new york, the tri-metro area, boston, chicago, where is it taking place because housing in and around the new york metro area is not going off to the races? >> well, you're going to see it across the country. that seems to be what the surveys are showing. now, the latest survey of the national association of home builders suggested things were a little bit flat, but you're going to get rebuilding after hurricane sandy in the northeast, and there are bidding wars in places like phoenix and parts of florida that used to be soaking in exces
that if they really want to create value and send their stocks higher, the best way to do that in this environment may be simply to buy another company. hence, the huge spike in m and a activity in the fourth quarter. i think it's big. this trend continues in 2013, if you ask me. but i don't want just to see more deals. i want them to be the right deals. buy, buy, buy. so for all of the lonely is ceos who i'm sure are sitting on the rooftops singing. ♪ matchmaker make me a match ♪ find me a match make me a perfect match so you can sing, yes i am a rich man to a very plaintive tune. the hottest theme out there, a steaming hot thing, housing. these two combined, business will be an absolute powerhouse. i'm talking about masco and fortune brands home and security. two makers of cabinets, plumbing fixtures and other housing-related products. masco is the largest non commodity supplier to home depot and i should point out that any deal to acquire fortune brands would have to be done later in the year because of arcane tax laws. that's the caveat. still, the timing. we are now witnessing a fabulous hous
of capacity and given the macro environment, given the cannibalization that tablets are doing with the expensive notebooks and the road map that is questionable. >> is there a road map that you see that gets them into the tablet and mobile space in a better way? you look at what is happening to the stock of arm, look at the stock of qualcomm, and these guys are nowhere in the same arena. >> that's a good question. they have the road map to get in. will they have a position of dominance? being the same is not going to be enough, particularly given a lot of oems over many, many years being accustom to them being basically sole source or a dominant proprietary source when you have an alternative where you have a multi source solution, some suppliers that use their processing from a company called arm. so it's going to be very tough. you have to have significant advances for oems to use your product. i don't think they that. >> what does this say about hue yet pack yard? what does this say about the news about dell with a potential buyout? i assume what is happening at intel is ha
. >> all right. how do you want to allocate capital then, bruce? how are you investing in this environment? >> we think it's important not to be taking too little risk, so certainly making sure that you have adequate exposure, especially to things like the emerging markets where the fundamentals of growth are a lot better than they are in the united states is clearly important, but most of all making sure that you're taking in risk in line with what you can afford to take and not taking too much and not too little but really controlling it throughout the year. >> steve. is it possible that the beige report that we get today is sort of ancient history because things are becoming clearer now as far as the fiscal policy of the united states. we still have the debt crisis coming in a couple of months here to be resolved, but, you know, things do seem to be getting better. we've had some companies say that the housing market is for real right now, for example. >> yeah. i guess there's two different ways to think about it, bill. ancient history or crystal ball telling our future. i mean, when i
environment and certainly the lack of big deals even though dell had an announcement a few days ago that organic growth - actually making money instead of kind of manufacturing money, so to speak - may be difficult here, given the fact that certainly goldman sachs is near a 52-week high and j.p. morgan not too far away. and the fact that they are employing a lot of leverage to hit their numbers gives me, as a trader, a lot of pause for concern here. > so what would be your trade here, or would you just stay away from the big banks for awhile? > > you know, i think we touched on it last week, given the run-up that we've had, i'm certainly fearful, and i'm buying some out-of-the-money puts on the option side here. from an investment standpoint i would absolutely wait for a pullback on any of these names given the run-up they've had here. goldman maybe about a $125 level, so looking for about a 10% pullback across the board. citigroup even a little bit more. j.p. morgan maybe a little bit less. they had some headwinds from the "whale tale" so to speak. > good to have you on the show. t
the case be made for all women in a college environment? you have been the president of such a school. >> one of the things people think is a single sex school is all women. we have some male professors. the tilt is female, but we have male professors. they are not sitting in a convent. you have other school that are close by. so, none of these children or young people are being koiserred. it's an important point to make. a lot of them think they are going to be. however, i think there are lots of benefits. there are some disadvantages. there are 4,000 plus colleges in the united states. 4,000. you have clernlg colleges for african-american. 45 women's colleges. you have one founded for jewish people, why not variety? i didn't go to a single sex school. a lot of women who are achievers didn't. some want to make that choice. they want to learn and be focused. they want to have the opportunity to learn without the distraction of young men in the room and they are being prepared to go into a world with all the tools that make them unintimidated by men. they have learned how to argument.

to be in this environment? what kind of year do you expect it to be? >> we don't have price on the dow, but we continue to look at more domestic-facing companies and industries, so consumer finance are big parts of both portfolios. we think housing continues to improve, consumer continues to delever, monetary policy remains supportive, so stock-pickers, we own redwood trust, which is a mortgage reit investment jumbo. we own carmax. they invented the used car superstore, lots of growth left there. and then a final stock would be ko colfax, which we do a great job as the vascular system for the global economy. they build large fluid systems for petrochemical companies, energy companies, as the economy comes in, as industrial production comes back, they're well positioned. so, we're pretty constructive on the asset class, particularly because a lot of people don't seem to be all that constructive on the asset class. >> steve sax, what about you? where are you seeing the flow? what are investors particularly grav stating towards these days? >> it's till equities and all of last year, credential the first c

environment but we're optimistic as we go through 2013. liz: the whole point of windows 8 to make it touch-screen enabled. we hear from microsoft windows 8 is trending in the same trajectory as windows 7. was that enough for you? i'm sure you guys would have loved to see faster do00 of windows 8? >> it was late in the fourth quarter. not later than they said but late in terms of the buying season. we're quite pleased with what is happening in the market. you know, the operating system, if you played with it enables a great touch experience. it is a modern ui. you put that in conjunction with a great piece of hardware, you know, convertable and something very thin and light with all day battery life. i think it is really compelling device. liz: let me get to smartphones, as you push into the realm not as quickly as some names like qualcomm, the past four months we have had a patent war with samsung and apple. now they are mortal enemies the only other entity could scale up a huge roll upfor the next apple iphone would be intel. do you expect in the next year, 2013, that iphones will have in

have understood that in this environment, hopefully that, like mayors do, we look at solving problems. and right now, the environment is just not good to have that kind of discussion. we saw it with the fiscal cliff discussion. we saw when you get to last-second discussions, good decisions aren't made and really nobody wins in those because then you have to sort out what happened. i think the republicans are saying, listen, let's have a cooling-off period, let's figure out how we want to approach this. let's work on solutions. that's what mayors do all day long. we work on solutions. we get frustrated when the ideology becomes the bigger issue than solving these problems. we'd love -- if this reprieve results in congress being able to actually take action at some time other than 11:59, we'll be happy because the certainty of decision has more impact on the economies of our cities and on us than decisions that are made. business and people adjust to decisions, good decisions and bad decisions. what they can't adjust to is uncertainty. if that reprieve gives us a little bit more time to
into the international environment, which makes it more complex, but let me use that as a segue. we know and hear about economic impact repeatedly, but who speaks for the environment, and how can we keep that the boys drowned out as a difference for -- voice from being drowned out as a result of a difference of relationships? how do we close the cycle of latency and try to understand where we need information? >> let me start with a comment you made, which i found to be fascinating, that there is between a $11 and $30 for every dollar spent. an ounce of prevention is worth every cure. that is a 16 fold ratio. we know that. our policy has to put that in place. we need a baseline. of course we do. the only thing forcing the baseline is smart companies, and they may as well get a baseline, because they will show we started which dirty water, but there are no resources to get the baseline. we know we need to drill the northeast over the next couple days. -- decades. we need that baseline. we need it desperately, and we needed for human health as well. lots of different communities have different kinds of d

"squawk on the street" begins right now. >>> good wednesday morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm melissa lee with carl quintanilla, and jim cramer and david faber at the new york stock exchange. stocks had a pretty nice day yesterday. the s&p closed at five-year highs. we are looking to the down decide this morning. the dow looking to lose about 62 at the open. the picture in europe, a couple of downgrades for gdp forecasts from both the german government and world bank. italy is down by 1.5%. road map this morning starts off with the banks and earnings. jpmorgan higher. goldman sachs at 18-month highs. >> japan airlines grounding their entire dreamliner fleet. >>> dell shares falling this morning after david faber reports that a deal could be announced within two weeks, but at a price of 13.50 or 14 a share, he's got the de
the risk. >> you manage risk. that's what you have to do particularly in today's environment where there is a fair amount of risk. let me ask you before we get into this dwe bait. how are you managing risk right now? how are you allocating capital? >> we're global managers so we have a broad spectrum where we can go now. we think overseas is advantageous rather than being in the u.s. close to the highs. yet the economy is -- the real economy is trading somewhat off its highs. if you look at europe, for example, where the headlines have been negative. the news flow has been awful. performance has been awful as well. so the market in europe has more reflected the performance of the real economy than it has here in the u.s. the fed qe program, the safe haven of the u.s. has caused money to flow to this part of the world. i think that leaves the u.s. a little pricier and perhaps more of a risk. >> it takes courage to fight the fed, though, right? >> absolutely. but ultimately and jack said it, fundamentals do matter. i think the market will reflect those. >> i heard active management d
cliff was a friendly family discussion compared to this hatfield/mccoy environment that's unfolding with regard to spending. >> so you think this whole story is going to have some real heart-stopping moments for the markets? >> i think there will be huge consequences. recall that in the summer of 2011 the last time we faced this that the dow went down 1800 points in july and august. now, granted there were some other issues in europe that were a concern. but we could see some serious consequences as a result of these -- this inability to have a discussion on spending cuts. >> i know you're a bond specialist, but apple reducing their iphone orders and so forth. apple fell 3.5% today. $18 to 501. is this apple reduction in ipad orders, is this symbolic of an economy that's getting weaker? >> well, i think so. i think -- well, we have heard some people say that, yes, it's part apple. the company. but also, i think it is symbolic of just people not having enough certainty of what kind of money they will have in the future to spend on items such as what apple offers. >> at the same time,
&p are yielding more than the ten-year u.s. treasury, and that type of environment where dividends are going to grow 10% this year, that can be a good backdrop on stocks like ford that developed its dividend last week, lowe's on the home improvement side and dresser injuries and transindustries. >> with all due respect, jpmorgan out yesterday saying that maybe the dividend play is last year's play and maybe now is the time to get into riskier assets in equities because they feel like the economy is going to start to pick up. so you're sticking with the dividend play though? >> i am. for these two reasons. one, bill, the growth of dividends is the story. not the absolute yield. it's the growth in dividends and that can be names like qualcomm, apple, ford is my example. second. when investors look much like 1994 and 1999, when interest rates went higher, the ten-year treasury was yielding, was returning minus 3% for those two calendar years. people will come back to the stock market, but they will come back to the stock market in the safer yield and dividend-growing stories. that is why i thin
't ignore the interplay between biology and environment. >> what about the fact that we talk about the irish or the native american indians. is it a lack of tolerance? is there a term for it? >> no, no, no. there's a genetic factor and an environmental factor. but the bottom line is we know how to deal with this. prevention, prevention, prevention. nine out of ten addicts started when they were teenagers. if the brain is still developing and you hijack it, you're permanently -- >> you don't like these laws legalizing marijuana? >> no, i don't. i think we need the public health community to weigh in here. so we need to be mindful, and not jump into this. >> like joe camel and that kind of stuff. >> exactly. liquor stores. liquor stores are places where people are going to abuse liquor and have easy access. >> this is too hot. the hottest topic in this country right now is gun safety. your family has been victimized. because of your family being victims, we are all victims. what is your feeling? >> it's not just the person that's killed, like my uncles. it's the whole family. so my father surv
purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the president's agenda. in a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, more than half, 56%, say laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter. so what realistically can the president do? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother jones," joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com, and both are msnbc political analysts. joy, how large should he be looking? >> i think the president needs to go in with a large package obviously, but when you talk to individual lawmakers, particularly on the house side, you get the sense two things have to happen. first of all, something has to pass the senate. that theoretically could be large, but the house is going to be a much tougher sled, although i was speaking with a couple lawmakers yesterday who seemed to think parts of what the president wants could actually pass in the house. things that are pretty much noncontroversial, things like universal background checks that even pro-gun, even pro-nra people
about the environment. if you want to sexually assault somebody, basically you are being sent the message that you can do it and get away with it. >> in april 2011, the obama administration released through joe biden actually new federal guidelines on how i believe colleges should be responding to these kinds of allegations. and they included speeding up the investigation, offering the investigations or video to the local police, has that changed? do you know if that has been a significant driver of any difference here? >> you know it doesn't seem like it is. just today we learned that unc has a dean that recently retired, accused the school of basically forcing her to under -- misrepresent the number of sexual assaults on campus and say it was much lower than it was because they didn't want their school to look bad. i think what we're dealing with here, there is so much interest in putting up images, that simple little tweaks are not doing the job of getting things better. >> thank you very much for being here tonight and thank you for your work on this. >> thank you. >> "the
was talking about green jobs. we thought maybe the environment was going to maybe not make the list at all. >> i go back what the president said in his first inaugural address he talked about the time of putting off unpleasant decision that time has surely passed. the most unpleasant decision is the country is going broke and we need to save our children and we need to save the next generation it is becoming, the demographic changes of america is what is driving it even more than spending decisions are and the task of whoever is president in this era to deal with the underlying demographic issues we face and entitlements. we don't do that we will continue to have a low-growth economy with high unemployment. got to get our fiscal house in order. to me that is the biggest of all. >> havens, do you think, given the president any genuine sign they are willing to work with him? >> well, the decision to postpone a fight over the debt limit, that, of itself, was. they saved themselves from themselves, which i believe. but also a recognition the president has the upper hand on some things, can't f
of those were similar kinds of political environments. congress was in the hands of the other party. or one house was, at least. and each of them was very gracious towards the other party. reached out, said things about the goodwill of the other party. >> the difference there is reagan could look back and talk about how the republicans worked with democrats to fix social security, bill clinton could look back and talk about the deficit reduction plan. other things they had done a little bit together. it's harder for president obama to do that because there's been so much polarization. >> polarization has been on both sides. it would be a good step for the president, i actually don't expect him to take it. to try to put that behind, to have at least a rhetorical frame for being more enveloping. obviously in the last few days, last week or so, he hasn't taken that tact. he's, he had his press conference about a week ago. he's had some, they've floated some stories about how they're going to have a more confrontational stand. and that seems to be the direction they're planning to take. neverth
rate environment is very tough for them. you want to be cautious going into earnings. sandra: i told everybody you would be naming names. stock your portfolios with what you suggest here. you're calling for three of the 11 regional names to beat expectations. which three? >> well that would be mtb u.s. bank and fifth third and we think they are all in a position because of their mix of earnings, a lot of fee income because of merger in the case of mtb. those are ones where you could see them buck this trend of overall pressure on earnings. we think those are the places to be and they're high quality names. sandra: i want to tell everybody, m & t reporting this week on wednesday, fifth third is reporting on thursday. those are where you're calling for beats. six of them you are predicting of regional banks will miss expectations which six? >> we have a number of them. in fact it will be more than six. it will be across the board. we look at a keycorp and pnc, some of the other names where the net interest margin pressure because of a flat curve, much like wells fargo, even if they mak
deficits, and also to deal with our trade deficits, and create an environment where the businesses can grow in the united states. the most important thing is we come together with a comprehensive solution, not just working one piece or the other, but a comprehensive solution where we can start to grow the economy again for everybody. >> but the order in which we do things matters. first, raise the debt ceiling, allowing america to pay for its bills that it already racked up. then come up with a longer term plan that could put us back in fiscal good health. america's ability to meet its obligations should not be held hostage to an agreement on spending cuts. >>> retail sales went up by half a percentage in december. cars saw the biggest gain, jumping 1.8% at dealerships. other stores that see sales go up during the holiday season, like clothing and electronics, barely saw gains. while sales are expected to increase in 2013, it is slow going for now. for one thing, americans are getting a little less in their paycheck, now that the payroll tax holiday has ended. and a little less money means
are building on the money center banks. i actually feel the environment is still tough, maybe getting more friendlives can i ask you about the rally we've had generally? it's notable that goldman sachs has outperformed both the ac and citi with an 18% rise in the stock over the last month. today, of course, you downgraded goldman sachs in the light of that move. where are you on the sort of share price movement that is we might see in those three and oats moves forward? >> to see additional up side in a broker dealing, you have to see the economy get better. that could happen. i'm hoping it will happened. i'm just not sure if this is the time to put new money into goldman sachs, if we're sure not sure that will play its way out. it's just a matter of, how long does it take for the uncertainty to get out of the way, so companies can get back to making acquisitions. >> jeff, do people give you a hard time when you cut the ratings and yet boost the price targets? that gets made fun of a lot. >> yeah, we do get some for it. the price target increase, it's very form layically driven. what our p
struck a down beat note warning that the global environment would remain challenging. let's take a look at shares. they are trading up nearly 4% in trade in london, up better than 7% in the last seven days. what's interesting, too, this is a company that last year just in talking about chinese sales saw shares get walked. >> after a really big run. there was a lot built into expectation owes that. >> this time, investors seemed happy about beating the last time. >> meantime, the 2% drop for same-store sales for h&m showed total sales up 8% last month, outperforming stims estimates. >>> coming up, we'll take a closer look at burberry with. >> inny carlisle, joining out at so is 10:45 a.m. central european time. set your alarm clock. >> something even more important is going on. for all of those who like a strong pint of bitter, the british beermaker has announced that it is reducing the alcohol content in its ale because of rising costs and lower demand. apparently watered down beer allows the parent company, heineken, to pay a lower rate of duty. so they're going to reduce the alcohol c
in this interest rate environment has been a boom in the past couple of years. those are going to expire at some point. with interest rates where they are, it's difficult for the banks on margin. there's no question the banking system is much stronger, earning better and is has much higher capital and liquidity than it's had probably forever almost. >> you know, well, that's quite a statement because there's a lot of people who would still say banks shouldn't necessarily be turning around and handing capital back to shareholderses. would you agree that given the improvements we've made, it's time for them to be allowed to go forward? >> i think that the banks have accumulated so much capital and that they really don't have a good use for it in light of the lack of qualified loan demand. i'm not saying lack of loan demand because there's a lot of loan demand. but the credit standards are much higher and you don't have much to do with the capital. so you have to give it back if you don't need it. i'm talking about toous banks. it's not true around the world. the u.s. banks have very high capital r
and everything because that is the environment when the i.t. budgets are much flatter. so from that point, we were looking quite good so far as we get into the next year. >> and last question, what do you think this company will look like in calm of years time? it's been through so many transformations, changing business over the years. is this going to be a company that is still heavily focused on i.t. services as you divest some of the other parts of the business? what do you think this will actually look like in, say, 2015? >> clearly, you've been clearly focused on i.t. services, we had the demerger announcement last quarter and we are progressing very well. so as we exhibit this for the calendar or near or on that, we should be able to be done in terms of activity. which means if we're limited now, it will contain only the products and services in the geography. services are globally. it will focus more and more in terms of momentum as we identify with the life sciences, energy, natural resources, liquidities all in terms of fm services or retail and goods. and a deal supported by the pr
a catastrophic event and when these things happen, you need to look at policy and adapt to the environment. the important thing is to find a couple of items and be for it rather than saying we are against everything. backing the nra position which is more guns in schools. that is not a republican position. that would cost $5 billion to do. >> par do get republican support here on back ground checks. 87% of democrats and a lot of republicans support that. a lot on news controls and 38% democrats. you go beyond that and almost every other issue and the assault weapons ban. the semi automatic weapons and sales on the clips. a minority of republicans support all those issues. >> the items listed on that list and things that the republicans are talking about. they have nothing to do with the second amendment and my point is don't wait for the democrats to come out and respond to it. they have a republican plan and we both live on planet earth here. >> politically speaking, what would happen. >> the republican from texas stands up and said okay, let's support these gun control issues. >> i think
but the politicians in washington who created this hostile environment. rather than talking gun education they are touting guns are bad and the people that own them are bad people. stuart: when you were outed as someone who is bad because you got a gun. >> i am not a sexual predator, not a felon but i am on this list like a felon or sexual predator would be on and you have to be extra cautious. coming back to gun laws the national debate washington about background checks, westchester county a pistol permit, 60 day waiting period co. a written tests, take classes, i did everything. these are the most responsible gun owners in the country and it was locked up because those guys are responsible gun owners who couldn't get to the gun. stuart: always a pleasure. you come back and see us and see how this plays out. thank you. the highlight reel is next. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 you should've seen me today. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 when the spx crossed above its 50-day moving average, tdd# 1-800-345-2550 i saw the trend. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 it looked really strong. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 and i jumped right
environment that we're creating for ourselves and for our families. and this underlying culture of violence that leads to the kinds of tragedies that took place in newtown but also in columbine and aurora, and we can go through the list. we've almost become numb to the ticker telling us that some other community is confronting this kind of tragedy. and i think we have a responsibility as individuals and as citizens to push back on this. if this isn't the kind of culture we want, then we're going to have to say to companies, to our policymakers, this isn't -- you're going to have to stop. >> joe, i'm talking about playing nice, but i don't think that's going to work. >> and you know, the thing is, we have been focusing, of course, some on the gun lobby. >> right. >> but right after newtown, we were also talking about the responsibility of hollywood. >> right. >> and you want to talk about an industry that is completely blind to the -- you know, to their responsibility, bringing violence to culture, who was one of the most celebrated men sunday night at "the golden globes"? quentin tarantino.
that schools are structured environment and frankly, little girl's behavior, a willingness to sit still, pay attention, not necessarily to talk and get up and run around the room is more conducive to a classroom setting. what we've done, trying to turn little boys into different forms of little girls and a lot has to do with the way that schools are structured. you take a six-year-old and sit him in a chair and expect that they're going to stay there. it isn't natural, frankly, it isn't natural for a lot of little girls, it's more for the convenience of teachers than it is accommodating to the child's needs. >> that's truly right. little boys are savages, i don't mean that in-- it's just true. >> we can't change it, but thr he' lovable and grow up to warm, wonderful human beings when they get a little older. >> tucker: amen. on that hopeful note. coming up, get an instant mood boost from botox. true, that story coming up and women all around put it on every day, but one woman gave herself a no makeup challenge for a year, claims it made her more beautiful. is this a good lesson in vanity for
returns, what you're telling clients for the next three to five years? >> in this environment, we're actually asking our clients to think about three things. first we're going to have low interest rates for awhile. so they need to adjust their expected returns. so in a low interest rate environment we're going to have lower returns across all asset classes. second, we're telling our clients that as they think about the lower returns in the context of their portfolios, they also need to recognize that we are going to have volatility from incremental policy on a global basis. whether it's in the u.s., europe, japan or emerging market countries. we are expecting that policy, whether it's monetary policy adjustments, fiscal policy, it will all be incremental. and that will create market pressure because it won't be at a pace that the markets would like to see. so that will introduce volatility. and it's not something our clients should try to trace. they should look over the horizon and invest for the long run. >> looking at the long run, three to five-year term outlook if you look at
